We thought long and hard about taking this trip as it is very expensive. Glad we did as it was very special. Balloons over Began is a very professionally run company with highly experienced pilots. We were picked up from our hotel about 05.15 and taken to a large launch site for coffee and safety briefing before the launch. We... More

What a superb experience this was. I was with a group of 7 and there were 7 Germans and 2 selfie girls. A volunteer was called for to go in with the Germans. With the promise of extra champagne I was in like a flash. 4 people per pod. I suffer from vertigo, but this did not happen with the... More

Everything, from the moment the vintage bus appears in front of the hotel, til the moment they drop you off, was perfect. The briefing coffee was simple, fun and a great way to meet your pilot and get excited about the flight. It's dark out and soon, they start inflating the balloons. You can see every step of the process... More

I never thought I would ever go in a hot air balloon but this experience was very enjoyable. The ride is so quiet & smooth & the views at sunrise over the many temples in the Bagan region are really spectacular. We landed near a remote village where the farming methods were straight out of the Middle Ages & from... More

Our trip had been planned in advance and we were nervous about the event. It was AMAZING, every thing so well planned and a stunning experience. We were collected from our hotel in a vintage bus at 5.15am. Taken to the site where coffee/tea and biscuits were available. We were greeted by Nobby and Robert, both english pilots. We watched...

We had a wonderful trip over Bagan and was on both high and low altitude. It was worth the money and getting out of bed at 4.30. We had two children at the age 10 and 12 with us and the guide Robert was very professional, nice and friendly. We had a very nice landing on the riverside. The downside... More

It was a cool and early start, the bus was old and roads were bumpy but big balloons need big fields. This was professionally run and organized and my first balloon adventure. Our pilot Elly explained the rules and regs carefully and it was smooth sailing from the get go. We flew low over villagers who waved to us, the... More

It's a breathtaking experience that you should do at least once. Balloons over Bagan was very professional. We had a smooth flight. Enjoyed very much the amazing sunset view over Bagan temples!

They picked us up at our hotel at 5:20 AM. They took us on a very long 45 minute extremely bumpy ride in a 75-year-old bus. They had been warned that my wifeI had a hip fracture 14 months ago. No one discussed this type of bus ride. In fact the night before we were told that they were going... More
